CanadaMexico and the US The organization has been asking mothers to give whatever they can to help meet an increased demand for donated breast milk Part of the demand comes from hospitals More neonatal intensive-care units are keeping inventories of human donor milkand most breast milk donated to the Human Milk Banking Association goes to premature babies Several banks recently had such low

encouraging new mothers to start donating Last yearthe association’s 10 banks dispensed more than 18 million ouncesup from 400000 ounces 10 years ago Another factor in increased demand is more

Pradesh): Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh on Sunday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his "termite" barb against the Congress even as he ridiculed the BJP leader for "running from one constituency to another in a desperate bid to garner support for his party’s candidates in the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls "With the writing on the wall clear for the BJP the prime minister is making frantic rounds of Himachal" he said adding that his own rallies had been delayed due to Modi’s "frenzied movement" in the hill state Reacting to Modi’s "termite" barb against the Congress Singh said "Had that been the case the country would have collapsed by now instead of progressing the way it has in the last 70 years Himachal Pradesh also would not have developed the way it has under various Congress governments" He added that the prime minister’s comments reflected his despair at the anti-BJP swing that had started emerging across the country At a rally in Kangra on Saturday Modi had likened the Congress to termites and exhorted the people to finish it off by handing over a three-fourth majority to the BJP in the 9 November Himachal polls File image of Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh AFP Launching his campaign in the hill state in support of the Congress candidates with massive rallies at Nachan (Mandi district) and Fatehpur (Kangra) Singh said it was obvious that the prime minister had realised that the BJP was headed for an electoral rout "Thus he (Modi) has put all his personal efforts in salvaging the situation with the bleak hope that he will be able to befool the people "These last-ditch efforts are however unlikely to yield results as the people of the state have witnessed the devastation wreaked by the BJP wherever it is in power including at the Centre" he said The veteran Congress leader alleged that from demonetisation to the Goods and Services Tax (GST) the Modi-led central government’s ill-conceived decisions had brought the people of the country to their knees and disillusioned them completely from the BJP He further alleged that when demonetisation struck people were not even left with enough money to buy a cup of tea and added that with the promised GST money yet to come in the state governments were having a hard time carrying out any development and welfare works Singh one of the star Congress campaigners in Himachal also ridiculed the Bullet Train project at a huge cost to the exchequer and said rides on the train were more expensive than air travel "Why would anyone want to pay more for a train journey when they could fly at a cheaper cost" he asked alleging that the Modi government clearly had no qualms about wasting the tax-payers’ hard-earned money Appealing to the people to vote for Congress nominees Lal Singh Kaushal from Nachan and Sujan Singh Pathania from Fatehpur Singh said with the governments in Punjab and other states caught in a financial bind due to the various inconsiderate decisions of the Modi government the plight of the ordinary people could not even be imagined "But the BJP remains unconcerned" he said asking the prime minister if his government had spared a single thought on how the states and the people would survive in the absence of funds Pointing out that Himachal had witnessed a huge development on all fronts under Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh the Punjab chief minister said the people of the hill state wanted continued progress and peace which only the Congress could give them "Virbhadra’s love for Himachal and its people will ensure that under his leadership the state will see another phase of development" he added The upcoming polls were a fight for the future of our children Singh said and exhorted the people to go home and persuade their neighbours and friends to vote for the Congress in the interests of the state Citing the example of Punjab which he said was on the path of an economic revival since his government took over earlier this year Singh said Himachal which had already witnessed a huge industrialisation under the Congress regime would also see large-scale employment generation under Virbhadra’s continued stewardship "Like me Virbhadra has also declared that this will be his last election as both of us now want to hand over the reins to the youth" Singh said Written by Inder Malhotra | Updated: July 26 2014 7:59 am To begin the story from the beginning it is not clear when exactly the coalition era began Related News Whatever one might say about the timing motives or ramifications of Justice Markandey Katju’s sensational disclosure nobody has yet been able to disprove the facts about the undue extensions given to a “tainted” additional judge of the Madras High Court because of the DMK’s threat to pull out of the UPA government and thus bring it down My submission is that this was not the only gross impropriety committed in the name of coalition compulsions At the time when the Congress’s main ally the Left was objecting to the government’s proposal to partially privatise several public sector undertakings for instance some DMK ministers reportedly barged into the prime minister’s office to warn him that selling any shares of the Neyveli lignite project would bring his government down Since public memory is proverbially short let me remind the reader that when the single-party rule of the Congress ended and the coalition era began a large proportion of the political class including pundits and commentators virtually jumped with joy At long last they said the country will have “real democracy” and those excluded from politics for so long would be empowered However sincere the belief reality did not redeem it To begin the story from the beginning it is not clear when exactly the coalition era began Arguably it was after the humiliating defeat of Indira Gandhi in the post-Emergency election in 1977 For even though the Janata Party pretended to be a single political entity it was in fact a coalition of four parties united only in their abhorrence of the Congress and divided over almost everything else In any case the Janata collapsed ignominiously in 30 months Indira spectacularly returned to power She and after her assassination her elder son Rajiv who was practically dragooned into politics ruled the country for a decade His former cabinet colleague and nemesis VP Singh replaced Rajiv Singh headed what he called the National Front but turned out to be a notional front In any case the front’s strength was so limited that it needed the support of two opposite poles of the political spectrum the BJP and the Communists to survive Within 11 months however Singh’s government fell because of his unilateral decision to enforce the Mandal report recommending 27 per cent reservations for OBCs With Rajiv’s patronage the former Young Turk Chandra Shekhar became prime minister but lasted only 120 days After Rajiv’s assassination in the midst of the 1991 general election PV Narasimha Rao ran a minority Congress government for the full five years though the means he used made him the first former PM to be dragged to a court of law on criminal charges No wonder the Congress was defeated in the 1996 polls (though it retained 140 seats in the Lok Sabha) For the first time the BJP became the largest party in the House but Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s first government became a 13-day wonder A new government of the so-called United Front headed by HD Deve Gowda was then sworn in It too could not have survived even for a day without the Congress’s support “from outside” The then Congress president Sitaram Kesri for reasons of his own pulled the plug on Gowda but let the UF rule under the leadership of IK Gujral Another group of Congressmen pulled the rug from under Gujral’s feet because he would not expel the DMK from his government which the Congress suspected was complicit in Rajiv’s assassination (Ironically it later became a close ally of the Congress) In the general election in 1998 the BJP came to power by heading the NDA with Vajpayee again as prime minister But this government fell for want of a single vote in the Lok Sabha only a few days after celebrating its first anniversary Why Because J Jayalalithaa of the AIADMK withdrew her support since the BJP-led government could not or would not withdraw the court cases filed against her by the state government led by her bitterest foe M Karunanidhi The country had to endure another election before which the BJP as a caretaker government fought the Kargil war This time round it won with a comfortable majority It is to Sonia Gandhi’s credit that in the 2004 polls she led the Congress back to power even though the BJP was so confident of its future that it had advanced the election by some months By then the Congress had been in the wilderness for eight years and the dynasty for 13 In all fairness the coalition era in India began in 1999 and ended for the foreseeable future at least in May this year when the BJP won a clear majority on its own and a dominant one with its allies What Jayalalithaa did to the first NDA coalition has already been mentioned Under pressure from other allies Vajpayee had to put on the back burner some of the prime elements in his party’s programme Some allies walked out of his government However overall he seems to have managed his coalition better than the diarchy of Sonia and Manmohan Singh did or could during the decade they ran the ruling coalition the UPA Vajpayee usually spoke of “coalition dharma” Manmohan of the

three-match Test series against Sri Lanka after a thumping win at Colombo on Sunday With this victory India registered their eighth consecutive series win while skipper Kohli secured his second series win in Sri Lanka However some of the areas of concern still remain and Kohli touched upon one of them slip catching Stating that it is certainly an area that India is looking at Kohli said “Yeah that is certainly an area that we want to keep improving in I would say that on a pitch like that where it is getting slower sometimes you end up standing ahead because you want to pick up catches from the front And then when one big shot is played and the ball is bowled quick then you suddenly look like you are not in position It is a very tricky thing to figure out Maybe we will have to figure out a certain distance that we just stay in no matter if the ball falls in front of us or something like that” On the issue of specialist fielders taking those spots Kohli admitted that specialists are always nice “KL [Rahul] and Pujara are our close-in specialists Pujara does gully for spinners as well but then he takes on short-leg and KL hasn’t done as much of that practice as Pujara does So it becomes tricky I try to chip in but when I drop catches it looks bad We will have to figure out who stands in those positions consistently and keep those guys there for longer periods I think that is

Rabale police station said The victim was taken to a hospital where doctors declared him brought dead he said In Mumbai as many as 117 Govindas suffered injuries during the celebrations civic officials said A statement issued by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said "By 9 pm as many as 117 Govindas were reported to have received injuries while celebrating Dahi Handi at different locations of the city" "The injured are receiving treatment in different hospitals including KEM Nair Siddharth GT and Sion hospital All were reported to be stable" it said Across Maharashtra ‘Govinda’ troupes compete to form multi-tier pyramids and break pitchers of curd and buttermilk tied high above the ground on this day Rain and fear of injuries failed to dampen the spirit of ‘Govindas’ as hundreds of them were seen moving around in trucks and tempos travelling from one ‘handi’ venue to another in Mumbai The festival which marks the birth of Lord Krishna was celebrated with enthusiasm across the city including in areas like Ghatkopar Dadar Lalbaug and Bhandup Organisers of Dahi Handi competitions however said this year the celebrations were relatively low-key in view of the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) income tax woes and demonetisation Member of a mandal said "After the demonetisation several mandals substantially reduced the prize money offered to the Govinda troupes" Another member said "While demonetisation has slightly hit the cash flow the implementation of GST has made the people doubly cautious as they fear that the Income Tax department may come knocking any time Therefore many have decided to reduce the prize money" Last week the state government had assured the Bombay High Court during the hearing on a PIL that it would ensure that children below 14 years of age would not participate in formation of Dahi Handi pyramids The high court however had refused to impose any restriction on the height of human pyramid formations Secretary of Dahi Handi Samanvay Samiti Kamlesh Bhoir said "After the high court removed the restrictions on the height of pyramids we were only left with the task of ensuring that children under the age of 14 do not participate in forming the human pyramids" The year 2017 provided me the privilege of visiting over 200 teachers in 75 schools across districts as far apart as Yadgir in Karnataka and Udhamsinghnagar and Uttarkashi in Uttarakhand The schools I visited and the teachers I met were a selection from among those recommended by my colleagues who have spent years working in these regions My visits — let us call these Good Schools/Good Teachers — were meant to synthesise evidence and insights that could support or weaken the assertion that these were good schools (and teachers) Each school may be a case study by itself but when one looks at them in a panorama the richness of common threads that run across them is humbling In my earlier columns in this series (across parts one two three and four) I have written about some of the striking features that exemplify such schools and teachers In this essay I shall attempt to share my abiding memory of the many femaleteachers I met in these schools One observed how these teachers worked One tried to understand their perspectives on education and see how these translated into equity and quality in the classrooms We talked about pedagogy about children and learning about their own development as professionals — but one was also accorded the privilege of glimpses into their everyday lives and routines One marvelled at how they juggled multiple responsibilities without losing composure or hope and understood how much the progressive outlook and support of husbands in-laws and parents enabled and strengthened these women In our conversations the Scooty of the female teacher became a symbol of their spirit As did the unattended grocer’s shop whose owner had gone to help his teacher-wife receive children at the bus stand for a sports event I marvelled at the young mother with an infant at her hip leaving her ‘sasural’ with the blessings of a joint family to take up a

gentle winding uphill trek of around two km from the main road During monsoons the clouds pass softly over the roof of the school building Madhulika Thapliyal is the head teacher of the primary school and is assisted by Pavitra Rawat The two share the teaching of all subjects for the five classes Madhulika became a teacher in 1993 and it is now 11 years since she moved to Gamdidgaon where she has built a deep and lasting relationship with the community Madhulika lives in a place called Kutchidevi which is many miles away Her day begins at 4 am as she prepares food for the joint family By 7 am she takes a bus to the point nearest to Gamdidgaon From there she takes a shared auto to the base of the hill for the two-km trudge uphill Every monsoon on more than one occasion Madhulika sinks waist deep in slush at some point or the other duringher trek to the school A friendly tree branch enables her to haul herself up and proceed She must be at school by 745 am; she has never been late She has proven to be a fine teacher too If you ask Madhulika what makes her such a fine teacher she will just shrug and say ‘I am not doing anything special’ On observing her one notices a teacher of some skill who ensures every child is engaged Further observation reveals the children are completely at home in the classroom Even on the rainiest days 36 of the 39 children will be at school in time for the morning assembly — they do not want to miss even a day Often in lonely outposts like Gamdidgaon the learning achievements of first generation learners are only an incidental indicator of school quality The ability of children to discuss issues freely with their teacher or the way they take turns to write ‘the news of the day’ on the blackboard in the courtyard is a more nuanced indicator On this board one sees the news item — ‘Shivraj’s father is coming today from Dehradun’ — indicating what an important event it is for the village Or one might read ‘In our village the great-grandmother of Pankaj has fallen very ill’ demonstrating concern for the health of a classmate’s dear one For Madhulika this village news bulletin is an important indicator of children’s abilities to express themselves and the social values they are developing in her school The school at Gamdigaon *** Thousands of miles south is the tribal hamlet of Geddada Narayana Thanda in Surpur Block of Yadgir district one of the most disadvantaged regions in the country The primary school is the window to a better future for the children It is here that Kashibai began teaching in 2003 Married to an instructor in an ITI School she lives in a town some miles away and commutes to school on her Scooty Anyone observing her classrooms will see how well the children have been prepared to study

teacher award for Yadgir District and was among eight teachers from Karnataka who presented her experiences at the conference organised by MHRD in Bhubaneswar The people of Geddala Narayana Thanda will never let her go *** Gyansu is just a few kilometres from Uttarkashi town The Primary School is an old establishment Always a good school it has an even better reputation these days because of head teacher Rameshwari Lingwal and her colleague Darbeshwari Bahuguna Rameshwari joined the education department in 2001 and was posted to a remote village school in Chinyali Block many miles away from home On her first day she left home at 7 am but reached school only at 1 pm to be greeted by a locked gate Next morning a determined Rameshwari was able to reach school by 11 am but realised that the only way she could work would be if she were to live in that village Rameshwari was married and had a two-month-old daughter Leaving her husband and in-laws behind she found accommodation in the village and for the next five years she lived there with her daughter away from husband and family Once in two months she would visit home but otherwise was completely devoted to the school She would carry her infant to school and everywhere she went Very quickly she had won the hearts of the people of Banaut village In 2010 she was transferred to Gyansu Life is relatively better organised home is not far from Gyansu and her husband runs a shop in Uttarkashi Of course she does not have a minute to spare When home she looks after her 90-year-old father-in-law and other elderly members She gets up early to cook for the family and by 7 am she is ready to leave for school with optimism and good cheer Rameshwari maintains a daily diary and says ‘To reflect on what went well and what did not during the day is important because every day is a fresh experience’ In many government schools teachers go the extra mile for their economically and academically disadvantaged children Here at Gyansu while the government provides free uniforms for all the girls and all the children from the SC community there are a few boys who cannot afford to buy the uniform Rameshwari and Darbeshwari fork out their personal money for these boys For Rameshwari the concept of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) never seemed like a new introduction She says ‘We know each child intimately and know what she has learnt Our children do not even know whether we are assessing them it is a natural part of a day’s teaching and learning at school’ Rameshwari’s work has received more recognition recently In 2015 she was awarded the Rajya Shikshak Puraskar She modestly says ‘This was always a good school and all the teachers here were always dedicated’ At the Gyansu school *** The district of

‘sasural’ where her father-in-law was more than a father to her He gave her a cycle and insisted that she complete her Intermediate course in the nearby town of Sitargunj She did her BA too By then

received such prominence in the media had it not been for Mizoram’s fairytale story With each passing season conducting the so-called national championship has become an academic exercise Top players are kept away teams go unprepared and the quality is abysmal The All India Football Federation spends not more than Rs 1 crore to conduct the tournament; pittance compared to the Rs 15 crore spent on the I-League There’s no incentive to give it all in the Santosh Trophy monetary or otherwise The winners get Rs 5 lakh 14 times lesser than the Rs 70 lakh earned by the I-League champions But this wasn’t always the case Most Indian sides including the famous 1956 Melbourne Games team comprised of players who had earned their stripes in the Santosh Trophy At other domestic tournaments such as Rovers Cup and Durand Cup the scouts lined up to spot talent But at the Santosh Trophy the selectors picked their national side With the National Football League (NFL) taking over as the premier domestic competition in 1996 the tournament started losing its importance It became even more irrelevant after NFL gave way for a professionally run (relatively) I-League Former India coach Bob Houghton’s move to bar top national team players from participating in the Santosh Trophy in 2009 further took the sheen away from what was once a much-cherished trophy He did that after striker Sunil Chhetri injured himself while playing for Delhi and was ruled out of the Nehru Cup which was to be held a month later The AIFF then agreed (they in fact made it a rule) that players who are registered to play for I-League clubs cannot play in the Santosh Trophy The federation even went as far as thinking off scrapping it completely but better sense prevailed as they feared a fierce and enormous backlash The arguement that continues to work in favour of the Santosh Trophy is that it helps in expanding India’s already-scarce talent pool Many feel that young players who are overlooked by I-League clubs can use this tournament as a platform to get noticed But so poor has been the quality of matches that perhaps hasn’t been the case of late Until Mizoram happened of course The North-eastern side’s sharp attacking football was an exception and made it easy to understand why they were unbeaten throughout the tournament While it may be irrelevant in the larger scheme of things

derision Now he is drawing huge crowds whistles and applause for his witty one-liners During his road show in Gujarat Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi sort of outdid himself when he threw pointed barbs at the Narendra Modi government and hit exactly at the spot Oscar Wilde famously referred to as "below the intellect" Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi addressing crowd at a rally in Vadodara PTI "Beti bachao is now beta bachao" he said referring to the controversy over business deals of BJP chief Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah Then he hurled back at the BJP the derisive epithet that had become synonymous with him during the 2014 campaign by calling the BJP chief’s son Shah-zada On the prime minister’s silence over the Jay Shah controversy he asked if the chowkidaar was now a bhaagidaar; then echoing the jokes that have now started doing the rounds insocial media he held up Jay Shah as an icon of ‘Start Up India’ A politician like good cinema or theatre can be declared a hit only if his audience is having fun In Gandhi’s case the crowds seem to be loving his one-liners barbs and jokes At many places people enthusiastically participated in hisquestion and answer sessions that seem borrowed straight from Modi’s rulebook The other parameter of a politician’s success or failure is the reaction he evokes from his opponents In the 2014 campaign Modi just did not give any weightage to Gandhi’s verbal attacks and politics either ignoring it like inconsequential surround sound or turning it into a joke Gandhi back then resembled a pariah crying himself hoarse in a sound-proof chamber But this seems to have changed The BJP and the RSS both are now engaging Gandhi either getting into verbal duels with him or attacking the Congress leader in his family pocket borough of Amethi Obviously they are finding in his aggressive attacks laced with witty lines an agenda that needs to be countered Gandhi’s transformation from a butt of jokes a politician without heft or captive audience to a speaker regaling crowds connecting with them and more importantly having fun while doing all this may look like a recent phenomenon But he has been work in progress for some time A few months ago when he addressed a rally of farmers in Rajasthan’s Baran the audience was pleasantly surprised by his eloquence The verdict of the audience captured on TV channels was unanimous: Now you can’t call him Pappu He has matured Since then he has shown steady improvement as a speaker Much of this transformation could be credited to his speechwriters who instead of making him narrate parables and esoteric concepts like escape velocity have started giving him punchlines that cut deep India after all is a country bred on films with bombastic loud dialogue that triggers seetis and taalis Gandhi’s speechwriters have perhaps realised that electioneering in India is more tamasha than serious stuff; and rallies are a spectacle where the principal protagonist thunders resorts to bluster and sells impossible dreams They have realised that form and delivery are more important than content and intent To this mix of clever messaging Gandhi has now added that one factor that suits his personality – humility Instead of taking himself seriously Gandhi has started resorting to self-deprecating humour plain speak laced with penitence He is no longer ashamed of talking about how he has been turned into a butt of jokes by the BJP’s troll sena how his opponents did him a huge favour – "Meri pitai kar-kar ke unhone meri aankhen khol di" he said in Gujarat He is also not wary of admitting that the UPA was rightly booted out by voters for its flawed policies and mistakes This is carefully crafted strategy of projecting himself as a morally upright and contrite man who is modest and humble This serves as a stark contrast against the image of the BJP that is seen as a clique of aggressive shrewd politicians who don’t back off accept their mistakes and can go to any length to retain power Unobtrusively Gandhi is projecting himself as the ideological adversary and counterpoint to the prime minister and his narrative He is slowly taking derision and anger out of the equation by himself becoming a target of self-inflicted criticism and humour Will Gandhi succeed One of the popular fallacies of politics is that politicians succeed only because of their charisma and hard work The truth is every successful politician is a reflection of the mood of its electorate a democratic manifestation of the collective fears aspiration and angst of the electorate Every triumphant politician primarily represents an idea whose time has come Gandhi would succeed only when India is ready to accept a humble unassuming man who is trying to project himself as a counterpoint to the politics of the day His time would come when people are ready to evaluate Modi’s government on empirical evidence judge it on the basis of what it has delivered instead of what it continues to promise – next is moon Gandhi joked on his last day of the yatra in Gujarat His time will come when voters are ready to look at Modi as a pradhan sevak entrusted with the job of making the lives of Indians better instead of a Hindu Hriday Samrat out to address imagined and real grievances from the past To Gandhi’s credit he is setting himself up as the David in this battle against the giant And he has time by his side The good news for the Congress is Gandhi has finally learnt to enjoy the journey Srinagar:An army jawan was injured in a landmine explosion near the Line of

ever-increasing sale of liquor partly because of the revenue that it brings and even more because of the close linkage between liquor and politics Top News We find that the op-ed pieces on prohibition in various English newspapers including The Indian Express are largely written with a distinct “regulationist” bias — unanimous in their advocacy for regulation rather than prohibition as the solution to the liquor problem The authors argue that the problem should be tackled at the individual level through de-addiction and counseling and states should regulate alcohol rather than impose blanket bans They promptly write away Nitish Kumar’s support for prohibition as a gimmick to woo the women vote bank without bothering to ask why women demand prohibition in the first place Having worked on this issue for 15 years at the grassroots level in Maharashtra we would make a straightforward assertion that women demand prohibition as a political solution because liquor has become a political issue States like Maharashtra dislike any interference in the assured ever-increasing sale of liquor partly because of the revenue that it brings and even more because of the close linkage between liquor and politics Bigwig politicians in the state either own breweries or are closely linked to one Licenses are handed out to party karyakartas many of whom get tickets as well There are no population norms or area norms to restrict the issue of licenses — tiny hamlets of populations less than 500 persons can land up with four liquor shops and bars The bottomline — politicians whose political and/or business interests are served through increase in liquor sales would rather use their power to increase such sales rather than think about regulation In this situation the very talk of self-care counselling and de-addiction as alternatives to prohibition ends up depoliticising the issue and directly helps the liquor lobby’s agenda Regulationists add to the cacophony that asks women and families to “handle” their drunken men and resolve their personal health issues rather than demand any kind of accountability regarding the over-supply of alcohol in their communities Regulationists fear that banning good legal liquor will drive people towards the obnoxious illegal hooch However as the hooch tragedy of Mumbai which killed more than a hundred people shows hooch and licensed liquor thrive side by side In fact licensed liquor is sold illegally as much as hooch and kills just as many people The legal/illegal binary is blurred as licensed liquor shops set up well-knit networks to smuggle liquor outside their premises in blatant contravention of the law They do not adhere to timings or dry day restrictions; they regularly sell to under-age persons and use minors for smuggling activities The excise department has neither the will nor the way to act effectively against erring license holders Apart from other things like a severe lack of humanpower and resources the excise department has been drilled over decades to increase revenue by meeting sales targets Police have been ordered not to act without first bringing erring license holders to the notice of the excise department It is an explicit policy of the Maharashtra government that license-holders should be treated leniently and let off with a (minor) fine under the legal euphemism called “compounding of offences” It would be some relief if local people especially women had a say in the closure of erring liquor shops Except for the 27 blocks which fall under the PESA (tribal) area the rest of Maharashtra comprising more than 300 rural blocks and urban areas have to put up with a thoroughly devious procedure in this regard The impossibly complex process has rarely been used for urban areas — and never successfully The messy process for closing liquor shops in rural areas goes roughly as follows: First not less than 25 per cent of total women electorates in the gram sabha have to apply to the district collector to close the shop against which the district collector seeks a preliminary report from the excise department If the report is positive the collector informs the excise department and block-level officials either to conduct a women’s gram sabha where women can show their preference through a show of hands or a secret ballot The date for the gram sabha is announced 15 days in advance and women have to face violent opposition during this period The license holder and his henchmen do everything in their power to prevent women from reaching the venue of the gram sabha Even if the women succeed in getting the required numbers in the gram sabha/ballot and the district collector orders the closure of the shop the farce of appeals starts almost immediately The license-holder invariably obtains a a stay order from the excise commissioner or minister and the shop reopens almost as soon as it closes down Even a failed appeal petition merely means that the shop in that particular village is closed and the license is used to open a shop in another village and the circle starts once more The very law is structured to ensure that shops do not close that smuggling is not checked and the supply of liquor is never regulated Therefore if the politician-business-criminal triad can come together to protect their vested interests why should the women not form a vote bank to break this nexus Liquor is not a moral issue but a political one and therefore more power to the women of Bihar who have shown the way and hopefully more politicians

HewittLieutenant Governor of UP and several other officials saw little justification for a separate Muslim university Hewitt opposed the idea on the ground that denominational universities would increase the already existing communal tensions in the province but his government finally decided to support the scheme for political reasons An affiliating university at Aligarh had become a political battle cry The matter was referred to London where it was vigorously debated in the Secretary of States India Council When the constitution of the proposed university was being drawn up in the first two decades of the last centurythe question of whether the university should have the power of affiliating colleges was vigorously debated Sir Theodore Morrisona member of the Council who had been a former principal of MAO college and a close friend of Sir Syedstrongly opposed granting Aligarh the power of affiliation on the ground that it would be inconsistent with the idea of a teaching and residential university It was argued that the standards of Aligarh would be diluted by affiliating institutions far awayover which the university would not be able to exercise control; it would violate the principle of territorial affiliation on which Indian universities were constituted and the government would permit an enclave in any district where a few Muslims would set up an educational institution The Secretary of StateLord Crewewas himself not opposed to the idea of affiliation but with almost unanimous opposition from his Councilhe was compelled to refuse this power to the proposed university The ViceroyLord Hardinge and the Education Member of his CouncilSir Harcourt Butler feared that refusal to grant affiliation would cause grave political embarrassment and urged London that the right to affiliation should be granted on political grounds The India Council howeverremained adamant MAO College was started to provide English education to the sons of the Muslim elites of north India Sir Syed hoped that they would become loyal subjects of the Raj Howeverduring the Khilafat movementAligarh became the centre of anti-British agitation and pan-Islamic sentimentsand in the 1940s was drawn to the Muslim League and the demand for Pakistan It has thus seen many political swings No community or group should be denied education The Sachar Committee Report has highlighted the educational backwardness of Muslims in Bengal While the states literacy rate is 686 per centamong its Muslims the figure drops to 575 per cent Whereas 828 per cent of Muslim children were enrolled at the primary stagethe number dropped to about 26 per cent (in 2001) at the middle level and those who finished the next level to become eligible for admission to college As we go up the education ladderthe drop out rate is higher and higher not only among Muslims but for SCsSTs and girls in Bengal as elsewhere in India The main reason for this is poverty but also the appalling state of government secondary schools lack of infrastructureovercrowded classespoor quality teaching etc With the growing demand for higher educationIndia must certainly have more colleges and universities and there is every reason that Murshidabad should have one But why should it be affiliated to AMU AMU has enough problems of its own It is full of sectarian politics Does it have the administrative structure and academic quality to manage a university thousands of miles away And if this is permittedwhy cannot any other university in India demand the same right By the same logicBenares Hindu University (BHU) can also have affiliated colleges and universities Ancient and medieval universities in Britain such as Oxford and Cambridge and in Europe were religious seminaries But from the nineteenth century onwardsuniversities became seats of secular learning both in the West and in India The first three universities set up in India in 1857 CalcuttaBombay and Madras were all secularas were all subsequent universities AMU and BHU were exceptions in being allowed to have Muslim and Hindu in their nomenclature One can well understand that there is hunger for higher education in Murshidabad but why for AMU Let Murshidabad by all means have a college or university of high quality but why cannot it be an independent university or a college affiliated to Calcutta
